“Mommy my room, my room!!! I love my room!!!!” Sweet Pea shouted with excitement as we walked through an open house and she walked into a little girl’s bedroom. The walls were painted yellow, little girl’s toddler bed, bookshelf, toys, closet full of clothes. I stood there with Sweet Pea and watched her with tears in my eyes thinking one day soon baby girl, one day soon…
To be honest my faith has been shaken, I was starting to believe that the dream of home ownership was just that a dream. Thoughts of doubt made me to believe we’d never make it there. Yes debt is being paid off, but after the excitement of paying off one the burden of how we will pay for the next take over my mind. I see God moving in others lives but feel as though I’m stuck in a never ending cycle. One minute believing this is our year, its getting ready to happen for us and the next back into despair and doubt feeling it will never come to pass.
Then it happened, a peek into my future through the eyes and excitement of my 4 year old…my faith had been restored. She didn’t understand that this was just “practice”, we were only there to walk through and get ideas, or were we? Was this what my hubby and I needed to do in order to rekindle the flame of faith in our hearts? We often look at houses online, but this was much different. We were standing in the house this time, we could see ourselves dwelling there. It felt so, so good. I wanted to squeal like Sweet Pea and yell “My house, my house, this is my house” but held my composure lol However internally my soul was leaping for joy. This can happen for us, this will happen for us, home ownership will be ours!
Today I want to leave you with that little bit of encouragement. Stop focusing on what is in front of you and hang on to that which you can’t physically see but believe in your heart. “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (NKJV) Forget your current circumstances and remember that they are only there for a season. Put your focus back on what matters most your faith in The One that holds all power in His hands. There is NOTHING too hard for God. We serve the omnipotent God, the creator of all things. He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ever ask or think. We just have to believe.
Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had, who wrote in Scripture, “I believed, therefore I spoke.” We also believe, therefore we also speak, ~ 2 Corinthians 4:13 AMP
Peace & Blessings,
